06-03-2005 06:13 AM Wheel cylinder replaced
I replaced the wheel cylinders last night, real easy basic job. I went ahead and replaced both sides, S-10 parts are cheap anyway. The only tricky part is getting the clip that holds it in place on. Other than that just switch and bleed the brakes.

06-02-2005 06:36 AM Miss matched wheels
Notice anything different about these two rear wheels? I didn't notice until I was taking them off today to fix the brakes. It looks as if they put the rim on two different ways.... I'll have to take it back and probably have one replaced so they match...... always something....

06-02-2005 06:25 AM Brake Failure
Yesterday on my way home from work the brakes went out on the Stude. Luckily I was able to get stopped in a parking lot. I figured out that the leak was coming from the back. I pinched off the rubber line going from the frame to the rear end with a pair of locking pliers. That gave me enough brakes to get home. When I pulled it apart this is what I found... So today I get new wheel cylinders for both sides, I'll be driving it to work tomorrow.
